17 Life Lessons to Move You Forward

What Life Lessons have I Learnt?


Without a doubt, it’s the life lessons I have have been forced to learn in the last year, the hard way, when panic attacks became my daily hell, I had to admit to myself right then that this cannot be it.  My life was stood still, with no happiness in sight.


I wanted to feel calm and free.  The ambition and promise I once had, had faded into darkness, but I didn’t know how I got to this place, let alone how to get out of the hole I was now in.


Yes, I was suffering at the hand of Peri-Menopausal Torture.  That was a battle in itself and quite possibly tipped me over the edge into the loss of who I was, not knowing if I’ll ever find that person again.


Thankfully, with the support of amazing friends and family surrounding me, filling my world with positivity, and the space to allow the necessary soul searching I needed to do, to find myself again.  My head began to clear and eventually, after many months, I began to see a great path in front of me.  This path excited me for the first time in a very long time.


Once the energy starts flowing and you can focus on where you want to go in life.    Do more of the things that propel you forward, and create a life full of positive momentum.


Success go get it

Some people simply can’t be pleased no matter what you do.


You’re not capable of satisfying everyone at the same time. Trying to do that is a waste of your time and energy.


When you try to please everybody, you can easily lose your inner voice. This way you won’t come up with anything creative.  The fire within dulls, as does your creativity. That’s because the true value of what you create comes from within and from your true self.


Not everyone will love what you do, but you will probably find a lot of people who do. So focus on what you do best and keep developing.  Learning to find your voice and stand by it, is a hard lesson, but a worthy one.  Once you get there, you won’t look back.


Stop procrastinating – you won’t achieve success just by sitting there and doing nothing. When you take an action, you are moving forward.  If you fail, draw a line and try again.  Make life a great adventure!


The only time you should look back is to see how far you have come.   If you want to know how to move forward into the future, reviewing your previous lessons allow you to see how much you have accomplished and where you still want to go.

Here are some success lessons to help you motivate yourself into positive thinking


#1  Divide complex goals into smaller, attainable subsets. This increases your success rate, which gives you confidence and encouragement to continue in other areas.


#2  Reward yourself after you achieve a goal. For maximum effect, the reward should relate to the goal in some way. This motivates you to keep working towards specific goals and overall success.


#3  Celebrate even small successes. No achievement is too small. This is especially helpful in the beginning. You need to build one success on the back of a previous success in order to elevate your confidence.


#4  Start talking about your goals. The more excited you are, the more excited others will be. This excitement can quickly lead to others following in your footsteps in order to reach your level of success.


#5  Build your integrity with others by being honest and true to your word. When you promise something, follow through on it. If you don’t, your reputation and success will suffer the consequences.


Success in the Sand


#6  Focus on what you want to achieve in life. Plan daily steps to make it a reality. Even if you need to backtrack or take a different route, you are still moving towards your goal. With each step, you are closer to success.


#7  You can’t succeed if you don’t try, repeatedly. Most successes are not due to luck. They are a product of hard work, perseverance, and a determination to reach a specific goal.


#8  Don’t take the words of haters to heart. Some people are just “negative nellies” and have little to say that is positive, encouraging, or could be seen as constructive criticism. Your success depends on what you believe and do.


#9  Allow yourself the time and room to make mistakes. Those mistakes are the stepping-stones that will lead to your success. Just apply the valuable lessons you learn from your experiences.


#10 Success means different things to different people. Define, in detail, what you consider “success” to be. Describe how you will recognize it. Unless you know exactly what you’re aiming for, you’ll never be successful.


Today is gonna be a good day


#11 Success doesn’t always come in traditional ways. Your version of success will be as unique as you are. It will also depend on what you do and how you do it. But mostly, it will depend on how you measure “success.” Measure carefully.


#12 Many people equate success with money. However, for most people success is related to overcoming personal obstacles and achieving goals. There are many kinds of successes. Don’t limit yourself to one definition of the term.


#13 Take small steps every day toward your goal. One day, you’ll look up and realize you’ve succeeded. Apply what you learned to obtain success in another area of your life.


#14 If you don’t succeed initially, make needed changes, and keep moving forward. You can’t reach the success ahead of you continually turn around to focus on the past.


#15 Success comes from being honest with yourself and others. You can’t reach any level of true success through shortcuts or trickery, which compromise your integrity. Honesty and integrity form the foundation of success.


#16 If you focus on your strengths, your weaknesses will seem small by comparison. However, if you accept your strengths and focus on developing weak areas into strengths, you’ll have a greater chance of succeeding.


#17 Your mindset plays a large role in your life. If you have developed a growth mindset, you are more likely to continue working hard despite setbacks. This mindset helps you to grow, achieve goals and succeed.
